Soil Erosion Testing

The SRICOS scour prediction method and the HM-5940 erosion function apparatus were developed through research carried out by Jean-Louis Briaud, PHD, PE. and the scour research team at the Texas Transportation Institute of the Texas A&M University System. more »

Soil Erosion Testing, continued

In comparison with the HEC-18 equation (a standard for calculating scour predictions), SRICOS generally leads to smaller calculated scour depths and compares more favorably to actual measured scour depths.

The erosion function apparatus (EFA) was designed and built to prevent bridge failures by measuring the erodibility of soil. Used in conjunction with the SRICOS scour prediction method, the HM-5940 can provide more accurate erodibility measurements and scour predictions than previously obtainable.
